Wild Mustangs

Wild Mustangs / 18 x 24 / oil on canvas panel

Painted using several reference photos that I recently took of wild mustangs. These two posed so beautifully for me!

    1. I was lucky to catch this moment with my camera. There were two stallions rearing and battling while I was there but I wasn't quick enough to catch that action on film. They are magnificent and so spirited in the wild.

  3. Susan, you are back to the subject that you are so good at painting. These wild Horses are fantastic. It`s some time since you have painted horses isn`t?
    All the best Susan.

    1. I do admit to loving to paint horses, Vic. Their anatomy, behavior and majesty inspires me.

  4. Wonderful limited color combination. And like all your marvelous horses, I feel as though they could at any moment give a snort and gallop right off the canvas. Such energy!
